The Character Meme

Today I have spent the whole day in front of the pc - or it's felt like it.

Still, I got the orchestra accounts done, and printed for members at the AGM next week.

I drooled over made icons of James from the latest screencaps ... and have already shared with you!  Go, look, and then pick yourself back off the heap on the ground that you have become ... or was that just me .... again!

I wrote to 3 friends ... and all different letters.  No, I didn't do the copy & paste - they were all separate letters.
a)  A pen-pal friend abroad.
b)  A friend from the Church I used to go to 26+ years ago - she is married with 2 teenage kids now.
c)  My friend Sylv ... the one with the poorly daughter.  Kay is doing well, and doesn't need more surgery (for those who remember her story).  When she is 9 she will have to have her pacemaker replaced, but is doing great - However my friend Sylv has had  misscarriage at about 19 weeks.  So that's hard for all the family.
I did some other icons to enter in the fs_icontest  ... as well as thinking of some stuff for seasonal_spuffy 

I even had some time looking for work.

So, all in all a busy day, complete with a meme before tea.

Now, Im back ... and meme-ing again -

This meme I snagged from jaded_jamie  ... well it was him that I asked to give me a character ... I bet you can't guess who he chose for me ... Anyway, here are the instructions -

Read my answers.
Comment, asking for a character.
I will name one for you, from a movie or TV show.
You then repost the questions, with your answers.


1.) Do you like this character?

Spike is just an amazing character.

I first met him in season 7 ... and then worked backwards through his history.  His storyline goes from awkward poet, to brash vampire, to The Big Bad, to incapatitated and tortured to death.  In that time he loves as a human and loves twice as a vampire.

Over all the story that we see there are a few constants -
He does anything for the people he loves - whether it's his mother or the lady he adores ... even if they do not reciprocate that feeling.
He is impulsive - but in doing that he lives unlife to the full.
Although impulsive, he was also willing to stick around - when Dru was ill, or when Buffy locked him out, he still satyed there to be with them.
Even when rejected he keeps trying - you see that with all 3 of his lady-loves

So, yes, he is a fully rounded character that I could write reams about.  Of course he was fully brought ot life by James - a great actor, to show such a complex personality.

2.) What name(s) do you call this character? 

Although he has other names most especially William ... and within the fans there is great speculation as to what his surname was, or whether he had any form of title while human.

3.) What image/colour do you associate with character?

Black .... leather!

That black leather duster - but the white bleached hair and those blue eyes are certainly special.

4.) What song do you associate with this character? 

"I did it my way" - he sings it as he drives away in season 3

"Rest in Peace" - his song to Buffy in OMWF

But in my mnd one great theme for him would be "Everything I do, I do it for you" from Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves

5.) What blood type do you think this character is?

Before the chip his blood type must vary from day to day - victim to victim.  Latterly it was pig!

My mind has momentarily blanked though -  I know that a type was mentioned that he preferred in one episode, but can't remember.

6.) From all of the titles that feature this character, what other character do you think makes a good pairing with this character?

What other than me ... points to username!

No - I'm a Spuffy fan - I believe he should be with Buffy - over that time they both had a chance to grow, and they grew together, and if they could take time to open up, there would be such a strenth to build that relationship on.

He was great with Dru - but once he turned his back on bad, he couldn't be with her, as she wouldn't change for him.  He needs someone who will love him, as deeply as he loves her  - people like Harmony were fun in the short term, but he is the long-haul guy.

7.) What would you want to say to this character?

Turning away from being bad is amazing.  Never forget that takes a special strenth and courage.  One day you will get the girl to truly appreciat you.

8.) What do you want to do with this character?

MMmmmm - are my parents going to read this answer?  *g*

9.) Please choose five friends with your choice of character. 

Like Jamie, I'm going to leave it up to you whether you answer ... and if you want a character, just ask.
